This is a course for anyone who wants to liberate their creativity and immerse themselves in the joy of language. Playful, fun, entertaining, enlightening – explore your word power with Paul Lyalls. Full of off-kilter pen to paper tangoing, including an Edinburgh Festival Comedy approach to humour in poetry, scuba diving what you’ve been surviving via a trip to India!
Enjoy this set of 6 workshops, one of 3 separate sets which can be taken in any order.
1) Should have could have poetry tool box.
2) Journey’s and the travelogue in conversation.
3) A sense of place (2) and sorry not sorry.
4) Image detectives and news you can use.
5) As the saying goes.
6) Tone and setting – gambling not betting.
A note to prose writers: have you ever wondered what it is like to write in the poetic form? Perhaps you write in prose automatically, but would like to try to use language in another way. If your fiction needs a lift, if your life-writing needs lilt, if your central characters don’t quite sing (or even if they do!) you can free your writing through poetry.
We would love to welcome you to our writing community where you can progress your work, share ideas with other writers, and focus on your writing away from distractions.
